A finish!

Buzz is finished!  Isn't it cute?

I am happy with how it turned out.

I put in one more violet on the parasol.

Then I went digging around for things that needed just a teeny bit of work and they would be done.  Sort of.
This had been sitting on my sewing table for a while.  It needed two buttons to hold the needle page in.  Now it is done.

Then This has been hanging around neglected waiting for some thread rings to be sewn in.  I thought I had three tulip shaped ones but I couldn't find them.  So an assortment of shapes was used.

I am trying to decide what color velvet to use as backing for the Pyns cushion.  What one do you like?

The latest Silver Needle Circle of Friends club piece should arrive today.  So I finished up one of the previous offerings.  This is designed by Shepherd's Bush.

It was finished as a pin cushion or framed on the chart.  I have a different finish I want to do.  But I needed to put on the beads and buttons.  So this one is sort of finished.
The bathrooms are clean and I'm getting ready to pack up for the retreat.  BFF's are coming in tomorrow.  Fun!!!

  4. Buzz is spectacular! I love everything about it and your finishing is outstanding! So many sweet finishes. I like the dark cranberry velvet for the backing.

  5. I like the rose shade of velvet, picking up the pinks in your stitching. I`m in `The Circle of Friends club` too. Happy Stitching.
